I know a burrito is traditionally a Mexican dish, but breakfast burritos are a clever twist. The low carb burritos are so adaptable for any breakfast filling. I like to use chives or rosemary. My children, however, like to use onion flakes and cheese!

Add these variations to your basic low carb burrito, and add salt and pepper to season to your liking.

  • 1 tbsp chopped chives
  • 1 tbsp dried or fresh chopped rosemary
  • 1 tsp onion flakes
  • pinch chilli powder, 1/4 tsp dried coriander (cilantro), 1/4 tsp dried cumin
  • 1/4 cup grated/shredded mozzarella cheese or cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp bagel seasoning
  • leftover cooked ham
  • leftover pork sausage
  • mushrooms
  • peppers

If you vary the flavour of the basic keto breakfast burrito, then you can also vary the fillings to give it a real kick! Take a look at the options below.

School lunchboxes

Burritos are also a great idea for a healthy lunchbox. Always allow the burrito to cool first, then add the fillings and roll up. Secure and wrap using baking parchment paper, wax paper, aluminum foil, or a freezer bag.

Burrito maker

To make life even easier, why not grab a breakfast burrito maker? It makes the burrito and it can scramble eggs at the same time! Now that will get breakfast for the household made quicker than anything.

More keto breakfast recipes

Breakfast needs to be fun, tasty, and fast. These are some of the most popular family-friendly recipes that still keep you on track with your keto diet. Keto waffles and keto sheet pan pancakes can be made ahead of time and are perfect for the freezer for easy meal prep for the week ahead.

If you’re wanting a more traditional burrito (but without the unnecessary carbs) you can make a low carb tortilla then fill it with breakfast fillings such as scrambled eggs and bacon. Or my favourite breakfast has to be the reverse omelette. Crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside.

Recipe FAQ

Can you make breakfast burritos ahead?

They are best cooked and eaten fresh, especially because they only take 2-minutes to make. However, you can make the egg burrito ahead of time and they can be stored in the refrigerator overnight in an airtight container and reheated before adding your fillings. They should not be frozen.

How many carbs are there in a breakfast burrito?

One burrito provides 1.5 g net carbs from the eggs and the double/heavy cream. Fillings are additional so please calculate your own nutritional information and net carbs for accuracy. The carb value of your fillings can soon add up so make sure they fit within the carb limits for your low-carb diet or keto diet.

How do I stop the burrito from sticking to the frying pan?

Melt butter in the frying pan, or use a cooking spray before you add the egg mixture. Use a silicone spatula (with no rough edges) and carefully lift the edge of the burrito or slide onto a serving plate.

    Made this for brunch today . . . AMAZING . . . thanks so much for the recipe!

  2. 1 star
    That’s a fuckin omelette

    1. and you’re an f’ing ass Haley!

      The burrito was delicious. Thanks for posting.

    2. Lol my thoughts exactly. Hold an omelet and call it “burrito”

  3. Stephanie W says:

    It’s an omelette people. Enough with the creative rebranding

  4. 5 stars
    I really like this idea! You offer a lot of great ideas on how to dress up the eggs and change out the fillings while still keeping with keto! Thanks for sharing!

  5. LMFAO “it’s a fucking omlete!” i can’t. we’ve been saying that all day. wtf…

  6. 4 stars
    Its more of a savory crape than an omelet but you could tell what it was by looking at the image. If you roll Mexican toppings such as cilantro, onions, peppers, chills and the like into it, it becomes a burrito but be it savory crape or an egg burrito its still good. I only gave it four stars because burrito suggests its going to taste more like something you get from Taco Bell or your local taco truck than what this actually is.

  7. 4 stars
    It was delicious…..but it really was an omelet!

  8. Whoa! My husband’s been eating keto his whole life…. except he skips the cream because we avoid dairy…. and he actually calls it an omelette.

  9. 1 star
    I can’t wait for your “Keto Enchilada” recipe…..I haven’t a clue what that will be

    What’s with all the rude comments? I think some of you need to check your judgmental attitudes and try contributing something meaningful instead. Call it whatever you like – this is delicious and a winner in my house.

  11. be creative for keto sakes and don’t be rude

  12. 5 stars
    I don’t care what you want to call it, it was delicious and I will be repeating it. I filled mine with bacon, avocado, tomatoes, hot sauce, sour cream and of course cheese. Yummy.
